CS 485 Project 5: A cloud server


Over the past few years, the concept of a “cloud” where our programs and data can live has become very popular. What makes the cloud possible is a combination of Internet communication (enabling communication with servers located anywhere in the world) and virtualization of resources (enabling providers to offer/sell storage and computation inside the network). We are seeing companies race to put there services in the cloud, and users are rapidly embracing services in the cloud.

One of the most popular services is cloud file storage; the ability to upload your data to the cloud and then to download it whenever your need it to any device that needs it. Today we see an seemingly endless list of cloud storage providers (e.g., Amazon Cloud Drive, Google Drive, Apple ICloud, Box, DropBox, MS SkyDrive, SpiderOak, and others).

In this project, you will write your own cloud file storage service called mycloud<
